I also have yet to see evidence that the HZ D9GMH are the "best memory kit" on the market<--I'd like to see you prove that one =)
they arent the best on the market they are just pretty good, i like mine but i also have the crucial ballistic 2x1gb kit that does just as good but they are out of stock everywhere i looked, but i think they still use the d9 but i cant garuntee this as i dont know what they are using lately but when i bought mine they were

the funny part is dont matter which one you get you could potentially get a bad set and not get er much above stock (allways a possibility)

this is what i have my hz at right now, which is the higherst my cpu will go, the full timings list is 4-4-3-4-4-30-3-10-5-13

my ballisitc ddr800 guys can dothe same speeds but i havnt had the time to mess with the subtimings yet to get as good a score however i think they maybe a littel faster but i cant figure out the subtimings and wont have time until this weekend

There is no ETA on the HZ and scan doesn't even list them, more expensive alternatives

Crucial 2GB £281.99 inc VAT

G.Skill 2GB £328.99 inc VAT
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MY-016-GS

@MADMAX22, that is what I meant. D9 from say Team Group should perform similar to G.Skill which would perform similar to OCZ, which would perform similar to Super Talent and so on. So if they don't bin their chips like Corsair does with their Dominator series, it's impossible to have the "best" and they should all perform to around the same level

Dude. I was comparing a £220 set to a £240 set. That difference doesnt bother me.

But linking to a couple of sets that are basically at the £300 range....

Hell no. £240 is alot. £300 is just.... Alot more...

Are there any other sites beside scan and overclockers?

Guys,

I will not intervene with my knowledge in this case as there is already an acceptable number of knowledgeable members advising in this thread.

I however require that you stop insulting each others knowledge, like on page three, and please turn your attention to the recommendation of memory modules.

Regards,
The_Manual

Guys, one thing to keep in mind about that Corsair link, it's not updated regularly, and Corsair can let's say "change" things, meaning IC's, yet call it the same. Right now I have a hard time recommending Corsair, I'm not really liking them anymore. See, the thing about that list is, you cannot always go by that list. Reason is this, they can switch IC's and still call it the same kit. Unless you know the actual version number on the sticker, there's no way to know for sure. Just for an example: Up until I got my second set of Corsair 6400C4's, they had been D9's, but Corsair switched them to Promos. So if you go and order them online at say newegg, they don't tell you version numbers and such, they just tell you the kit's part number, which doesn't necessarily mean squat. You just can't know what you're getting til it's in your hands, and I really don't like that.

The Twin2x2048 6400 C4 kit used to always be D9, now it's Promos. Apparently, corsair is whining about how much they have to pay for D9's, it's cutting into their huge profit margin and they don't like that. So they put inferior IC's on supposed "performance enthusiast" ram, and still charge you a crapload for it. Apparently, in all their cheapness, they're reserving the D9's for the really, really expensive kits, like the pc8500 and up stuff. I used to like Corsair, but recently I don't like their sneaky antics. Oh sure, the stuff will do it's spec speeds, and that's the leg they stand on, to tell you they're not ripping you off by overcharging for mediocre ram. I call thorough BS on that though, Corsair if I wanted stock speeds, I'd buy value ram at half the cost.

You have to go by the particular set you have, Nasgul is right if it's v1.x it should be micron. 2.x or any other version numbers are promos or infineon or something. But it also goes by those batch numbers as well. Basically what I'm saying, is that just because the list might say that a certain C4 kit is listed there as v1.x micron, doesn't mean if you buy that same kit (without knowing the actual batch and version numbers on it), that it will have microns.

So I don't know about the Dominator's, maybe the C4 sets always are micron D9's....so far anyway. Personally, until I called up Newegg or whoever I was ordering from, and had them read off to me that v1.x was on the sticker of the actual set I was getting, I wouldn't trust it. So my vote goes to Gskill HZ, until I read somewhere about Gskill switching to crappy IC's like Corsair. Hopefully they won't ever do that, cause it just about killed any respect I had for Corsair. So that Corsair list is a good guideline, but don't take it as gospel. I have no doubt if you bought a C3 kit, it will be micron. But it wouldn't surprise me one bit to see a thread one of these days "My new Dominator C4's are promos! 430fsb max!".

The corsair is looking to be a bad idea, as no-one is really sure how it performs, or even what ICs its using.

So i'll probably go with the HZ.

Depends how long www.Chillblast take to get it in stock.

I've bought plenty of stuff with chillblast before, so i know i can trust them, and they always keep you up-to-speed with whats going on. Also, they have the option to buy the HZ that says 'pre-order' instead of plain old 'out of stock, oh noes!'.

Go for the Cellshock, they're guaranteed to be Micron D9GMH(GKX) and they're in-stock
